Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, Sociology / Anthropology, BA

Students of sociology are interested in the structure and conflicts of societies. Students of anthropology gain an evolutionary, comparative, and comprehensive view of their own society and of other societies in our world. Our unique blend of intriguing coursework, challenging research, and rewarding internships will provide you with a dynamic and practical understanding of the diverse social and cultural world in which we live.

Internships made available to students include such diverse organizations as the Museum of Natural History, the United Nations, Planned Parenthood, the Henry Street Settlement, and many more.

Co-curricular activities in this area include the Gemeinschaft Society for the Study of Sociology and Anthropology, founded by students and faculty members, which sponsors panel discussions and film screenings and organizes community service and social events.
